About Honey Bee City

Save the Bees

Even if you’re a beginner or have limited outdoor space, Honey Bee City’s beekeeping starter kit can help you join the urban beekeeping movement.

This modular beehive is Made in the USA and easy to assemble—stack it up and the bees will seal the structure with propolis, a byproduct of their honey making. There’s a clear panel to peek inside, and the copper roof is a nice design element that also protects the hive.

Bees help produce about one third of our food through their pollinating efforts, so having them around is vital. For the past few years, hives have been disappearing at an alarming rate, in part because of Colony Collapse Disorder, when worker bees disappear and the colony dies out.

“Beekeeper Rick” Cousins created this simplified system after moving to an urban neighborhood, where his commercial beekeeping supplies were oversized. While helping out the bees, you’ll also reap the benefits—like nutrient-rich honey and beeswax.

Before you get started, check your local laws about hive regulations and registration. You’ll also need to “hire” (i.e. buy) your buzzing workers, and local bees are best. Contact a beekeeping organization in your area and they’ll be happy to help.
